Powhatan Creek Park and Blueway

Powhatan Creek Park and Blueway

Powhatan Creek Park is part of the Chesapeake Gateways Network and provides access to the James River at Jamestown Island. It has beautiful scenic views of Historic Jamestown. Powhatan Creek is recognized as one of the most environmentally significant and biodiverse natural resources on the Virginia Peninsula. The views of the marshes, trees and wildlife were incredible. We kayaked 4 miles on this beautiful waterway.

The creek entrance allows access for non-motorized boat/canoe/kayak.

“This ancient waterway was used by the Powhatan Confederacy of Indian tribes, including Chief Powhatan and his daughter, Pocahontas. In 1607, Captains Christopher Newport and John Smith explored the area while establishing the first permanent English settlement in North America.
The creek is an access point to the 3,000 mile Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Watertrail. It provides a magical place to kayak and canoe while observing birds, native plants, and other wildlife. Now it’s your turn to paddle this ancient waterway and experience the same wonders as the Native Americans and early settlers.”

I always feel like somebody’s watching me

As we were kayaking we had some cute visitors swim up to us 🥰

During low tide you can see 100s of tiny fiddler crabs. They were so cute.

This is a great place to kayak. It will not disappoint.
